thanks for the advice. I am looking into getting another chin, but don't have the funds right now (I just spent around $400 to get everything for my first one)

I noticed that he has eaten a few pellets now, but really not more than two.

He is shy to drink in front of me, he'll stop if he notices my eyes on him.

He's had two baths already and he is warming up to us. He loves his head rubbed, but tries really hard to struggle when we try to hold him. He even tries to bite (he hasn't drawn blood yet tho) in order to get away.

How can I get him to stop biting us ? I don't know the best way to help him like to be held.
